I think you are wasting your time directing protests at Grimes. He is open in his beliefs but there millions of Americans(and Australian,etc() who hide their racial and religious prejudice and intolerance under the cover of hypocrisy. For example , they will hate people from a certain nature and say "they stick together" etc. Grimes has probably the same amount of prejudice and intolerance as the majority of the population,

in a way you are right: at least he doesn't hide his face so what you see is what you get and you can openly decide to not vote for this one.
no, i'm not trying to convince him of anything either - waste of time. i just felt the urge to express my opinion regarding his statements - because some poeple, through ignorance, actually trust his judgment and follow his lead without as much as doubting his informations.

i'm convinced that besides the freedom of expression, one of the most important rights is the freedom of doubt.
it's a right, a privilege and a duty!

i think that a lot of people are just too lazy to form their own opinion. they'd rather take one that seems to fit and slip it on. like in a drive-through - oh no, let's not think about whether there might be other sides to the story. they could get my pre-formulated opinions all in a muddle and would shake up my save little world!

but enough said, otherwise we would give to much emphasis to these "politicians" and their views.
